the way I look at it is like this: since the poll isn't specific on wether the water is an aquarium, lake, river, ocean etc. I would go with freshwater only on becuase of the ohio river, it seriously has some pugnant stinch to it lol now in an aquarium setting I would say SW, I'm always reminded of my schools abthrooms by its smells for some reason lol

I love my clown loaches and red tail shark!!! lol

you have a great point there.... it really doesnt specify whether its in an aquarium or not..... but im just going to assume.... that it means in an aquarium

The bay at low tide. Thats why it flushes twice a day!
Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

My vote is for salt water. I live near the Mississippi and Kaskaskia Rivers. As much as they smell, I can't STAND saltwater smell. When we used to go to FL every year I could tell when we were close. The smell overwhelmed me and made me gag. You get used to it but it's enough to make me dred the first day down there since it smells so bad. And it's a unique smell. Not like FW rivers. Not to mention it takes MANY washings to get that SW smell out of clothing. I love the ocean, but I can't stand the smell.
